Green Bean and Blue Cheese Salad

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + chilling


2 servings

This recipe was voted a keeper by the whole family the first time I served it years ago. I like to put the beans and seasoning together in the morning, or even the day before, then add the blue cheese right before serving this salad.—Donna Cline, Pensacola, Florida


  • 1-1/2 cups cut fresh green beans
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup pitted ripe olives, halved lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. Place green beans in a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Place the beans in a bowl; refrigerate until chilled.
  2. Add the blue cheese, olives, oil, salt and pepper; toss gently to coat. Refrigerate until serving.
